An irreverent beginners guide to the 60s cult classic "The Prisoner" and a fresh look for die-hard fans.
The Best and the Worst
After finishing the 2009 Miniseries we took a few weeks off, recovered, and now present you with this look back at our best-of and worst-of picks from The Prisoner. What was the Most McGoohan Moment? Most Questionable Technology? Best Number Two? It's all here and more.
This concludes the 2009 miniseries remake of "The Prisoner" leaving more questions than answers, much like the original. Unlike the original, here Number Six decides to replace Number Two voluntarily after an appeal from The Village's founder.
Both Number Six and Number Two develop disturbing alter egos in this penultimate episode. 11-12 confronts his mother, and we get further glimpses of 313's past.
Number Six's village existence and his life as Michael in New York draw closer together when he is introduced to 415 (Lucy in NY) through a dating service.
Number Six is persuaded to train to be an "undercover" in the village. He learns of the surveillance villagers are subject to, including the scrutiny of their own children.
Here we continue our discussion of the 2009 miniseries adaptation of The Prisoner. In this episode Number Six is introduced to his alleged brother, searches for the ocean, and winds up imprisoned in the infamous clinic.

A fun way to relive an old favorite
I’ve always loved The Prisoner, and reliving it with the posts of this podcast has been a real treat. They don’t always follow everything or come at things from a different perspective than me, but I find that only deepens my appreciation for the original series.
They don’t like it
It’s clear that they don’t even like the show. I find none of their comments insightful or helpful. I got to the episode on Thr General and when they said they couldn’t even understand the plot, I was done with the show.
